Join us for an evening of art, musical performances and community discussion centered on the immigrant experience and Bronx love.
Artist Not4Prophet will perform original songs inspired by Joe Hill, a Swedish immigrant, songwriter and labor activist, and recount stories from his own life experiences in the Bronx. Following the performance, all attendees are invited to share stories, memories, and ideas in a story circle, and contribute a love note to the Bronx on our “South Bronx Love Letter” interactive station.
This event is presented in conjunction with BxArts Factory ‘s exhibit “Memories Un-Remembered,” a collection of visual stories exploring immigration, nostalgia, displacement, adaptation, and gentrification.
The Bronx Music Heritage Center Laboratory is located at 1303 Louis Niñé Blvd. Take the 2 or 5 trains to Freeman Street, or the BX 19 bus.
"South Bronx Love Letter" is a series of workshops and community events that showcase storytellers, artists, and community members sharing their love for the Bronx through true life stories, poetry, and art. This series aims to affirm the stories of people who have been living in the South Bronx and pouring their love into it, putting forward an image of the Bronx as defined by the people who live there.
